The brilliant book series from author Dav Pilkey, creator of Captain Underpants! Dog Man is the crime-biting canine who is part dog, part man, and ALL COP! With all the same humour and fun of Captain Underpants, Dog Man is a brilliant series of comic-book style novels.
Dog Man is the ultimate cop – with the brain of a super-smart dog and the body of a super-strong cop, he is bound to outwit his arch-enemy, cat Lil Petey. And when he gains an unlikely side-kick, Dog Man and Cat Kid are double trouble for Petey’s evil plans.
The first book in the series is Dog Man, but you can read the books in any order. There are now 10 books in the series and the new Dog Man book for 2021 is Mothering Heights.
Dog Man’s Reading Level is Grades 1-3 (USA), ages 6+ in the UK. We’d recommend the Dog Man series for anyone who loves silly humour, comics and superheroes, whatever your age.
You can head to the author's website https://pilkey.com/ for Dog Man colouring pages, games, how-to-draw Dog Man and Cat Kid tutorials and more. Like all Dav Pilkey’s books, the Dog Man comics are inspiring for budding artists, with the fliporamas and “how to draw” pages.
